Lounge seating was designed by Bill Katavolos, Ross Littel and Mike Kelly for Laverne.  Diamond Chairs by Harry Bertoia surround elliptical tables by Charles and Ray Eames.  The huge mural on the west side is Eli Bornstein’s Structurist Relief in 15 Parts (the largest piece Bornstein ever created if I’m not mistaken).  The beautiful mosaic mural in the east side is John Graham’s Northern Lights.
