Innovative Office: This Entertainment Law Firm Office Doubles as an Art Gallery

Del Shaw Moonves Tanaka Finkelstein & Lezcano's office, designed with brand objectives in mind.

The reception area combines marble, dark woods, and a bright painting. To the right, a conference room features retractable walls to open the space.

On the 17th floor of one of the most iconic entertainment office complexes in Los Angeles—the trio of buildings includes the 44-story Century Plaza Towers and 12-story 2000 Avenue of the Stars building—you’ll find the bright and colorful law offices for Del Shaw Moonves Tanaka Finkelstein & Lezcano. The atmosphere is meant to reflect the philosophy of its lawyers and the brand’s objectives: diversity, inclusion, transparency, and fairness.

A James Rosenquist painting is the highlight of the reception seating area.

Notable Features

-The firm’s existing art collection established the design focus of each space and reflected the diverse backgrounds of its team. For instance, there’s a subtle Japanese influence at the reception desk, an African influence in the pantry, and a modern European influence in the private offices and conference rooms.
-The offices serve a variety of purposes, including hosting client events, educational presentations to law students, and evening cocktail parties.
-The lobby/conference room can accommodate up to 200 people thanks to a sliding Muraflex wall system that opens up the spaces.

The kitchen and pantry area has the casual vibe of a cafe.
