Slothrop's Reviews: SEB:

This photo doesn't begin to describe it (the bank doesn't like photos), but SEB Estonia's main branch went from looking like a Vegas casino to some Dystopian Waiting Room of Death. People sit around in chairs like Mr. Sulu had while staring zombie-like at a series of screens under which sit the tellers. Who thinks up this stuff? Some Estonian architect has a very rich sense of humor. Highly recommended as a tourist stop. Take your friends. BYO coffee and watch the zombies.
