Uncle Collins Street


The Storyteller’s Chair in Foolscap’s Uncle Collins St Project

When Rene Spence approached Foolscap Studio to design the new Uncle restaurant on Collins Street, Melbourne CBD, Foolscap Studio looked to Vietnamese food as the key source of inspiration.

“Vietnamese food uses a combination of five flavours (sour, bitter, sweet, spicy, salty) which connect to the five material elements (earth, fire, water, wood, metal),”

says Foolscap Studio manager Brianna Carroll.

“The contemporary but understated take on Vietnamese dining, which is what chef Dai Duong and front-of house Rene Spence do best, is reflected in room,” she says.


Foolscap Studio specified the Storyteller’s Chair in the low seating area of the restaurant. In a hospitality environment, the utility of the Storyteller’s Chair as an easily transportable, folding chair enables the creation of more room for functions, or access for cleaning with minimal effort. Wait staff can also nimbly accommodate different seating arrangements, and spare chairs can be brought out from being efficiently stored for additional guests and diners.
