Historic collection in Circl

The art presented in Circl has been combined with various objects from the bank's past. These have been used in a creative way, or recycled - the financial tombstones or deal toys, or archival cabinets transformed into service desks, period furniture specially designed for predecessors of the bank, historical stock certificates used as wall decoration, old letters from the bank’s facade conveying a new message - entirely in accordance with Circl's sustainable outlook. A centuries-old bank has reshaped its past and adapted it to modern times.
