Fine Art Logistics Natural Le Coultre (FALNLC) has selected Arius Technology, the leader in 30 mapping, digitisation and re-creation of masterpieces by some of the world's most loved artists, to join them in offering art collectors exciting new services.
In March 2018, FALNLC will launch fine art re-creation and digital archiving services from within the safety of their state-of-the-art facilities at Le Freeport, Luxembourg.
With art sale records being broken year after year, the secondary art market continues to prove lucrative for collectors and investors all around the world. With more pressure to insure and store humanity's most precious assets, the ability to enjoy a fine art re-creation without taking a masterpiece out of storage is a long-awaited opportunity for many.
Artworks are safely and securely stored by FALNLC at Le Freeport's highest-rated maximum-security vault, where they can be carefully digitised with Arius' on-site museum-approved system, operated by professional without ever leaving the facility.
Arius' team of engineers remotely process millions of data points, transforming virtual re-creations into beautiful textured prints that can be enjoyed at home or in the office as if they were the original.
Collectors also have an exciting opportunity to create digital fingerprints of their entire collection. Taking a snapshot of artworks provides priceless data that can be utilised to help preserve the humanity's cultural heritage, effectively building a cultural "seed bank" for fine art. The data can be licensed or donated to museums, publishers or exhibitors and positions collectors to take advantage of future 30, virtual reality and augmented reality technologies.
Bringing together world-leading capabilities in 30 digitisation and elevated printing, Arius has worked with world-class museums to safely and accurately capture the color and geometry of each brushstroke within original artworks, producing the most authentic, textured re-creations available.
"It's the richest reprographic technology on the planet today," remarked Stephen Gritt, director conservation and technical research, National Gallery of Canada.
Together, FALNLC and Arius are at the forefront of using 30 digitisation technology to change the way we protect, preserve and live with art in such a way that future generations can benefit from today's latest advances in art collector services.
