On 1 April, PostFinance is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its headquarters – the striking PostFinance Tower in Bern. The company has taken advantage of the familiar date to play an April Fool’s joke.
PostFinance published a communication on the morning 1 of April 2023 announcing that it plans to wrap its headquarters at Bern’s Guisanplatz in cooling film during the summer months. This is of course an April Fool’s joke. Unfortunately, the company has not yet been able to find any special film that could effectively cool an entire building while also being translucent and allowing light to pass through. The PostFinance Tower, which was supposed to have been wrapped up, is celebrating its 10th anniversary today, 1 April. The financial institution moved into its then new headquarters at Mingerstrasse 20 in Bern exactly ten years ago today.
