What a bank!

That's the literal translation of CheBanca which offers an innovative take on the traditonal bank branch courtesy of Milan design studio Crea International. It's as sleek and cool as the Apple Store.

Hat tip to Rob Findlay at the Bank Channel.

Yes, it looks nice, but what are you supposed to do in it? Apply for a loan or order a chai latte?

I agree this is starting to look like a 21st century branch where a client can go in, grab a cup of coffee, check out some advice on the computers and then approach an individual for more detail / questions or to scan in some documents to reach the head office by portal. Bring it on! Remember the blog / discussions about the future of branch banking?
