Gunlocke’s upcoming showroom for NEOCON 2020 breaks down, literally, what makes the brand so renowned by revealing the finest craftsmanship embedded within each piece. Guests will experiment with the flexibility of multipurpose workspaces in this newly branded experience, unified by the taxonomy of wood. This is a deconstructed showroom with deconstructed furniture.

BLOCKING AND CONCEPT DIAGRAM
The moment visitors enter, they are guided through an expanding taxonomy of wood motif. From a wood installation in Class A to a cross section in Class B, guests are redirected to the display elevation of a pixelated wall in Class C. Their journey continues after the showroom designs to a veneer ceiling installation in Class D and eventually the interactive cube in Class E as a final pickup point. At every class station, visitors will pick up a cube part of their giveaway to encourage a deconstructed yet cohesive exploration of the entire exhibition.
