In 1954, in Columbus, Indiana, Eero Saarinen designed a bank with glass walls, no offices, and a completely open floor plan. It was surrounded by trees; the furniture was made by Herman Miller; the lobby flooring was thick, rustic brick. The bank was built with transparency and community at its core.
Since 1954, a lot of things have happened Saarinen’s bank branch is now a conference center, people increasingly live on the internet, and it’s hard to think of a single bank that still applies design thinking to their product.
Mercury is building a bank for startups. We believe building a bank in 2021 revolves around thoughtful design, and we’re looking to add a visual designer to our team to help.
