About Us

ArtRatio is a boutique manufacturer of smart glass vitrines to protect and display fragile art, antiques and luxury items.

Our name stems from the Golden Ratio, used by artists, architects, mathematicians and scientists, from Euclid to Da Vinci to Dalí, to emulate the divine proportions found in nature.

ArtRatio aims to combine the beauty of mathematics and art, analysing conservation data in order to reduce risk on fragile collections and to enhance their visibility.

The Meaning of ArtRatio

Our name points to the need to discover the ‘indices and ratios’ underlying art collections, much as we look for indices and ratios related to a financial security. This data helps our customers to decide whether to display, conserve, secure or store the items, based on the risk that the collection is being exposed to and the popularity of the items on display.
