PrivateLot originated from a simple observation: the art market is one of the last sectors to have welcomed the Internet revolution, mainly due to its structural complexity.
While the online art market was barely taking its first steps, the founders of PrivateLot anticipated the potential of its development by privileging simplicity of access and openness towards all, the idea being to make thousands of objects accessible to users from around the world, which they had to search for on their own until then.
→ Facing a diversity of participants interspersed at the four corners of Europe, it was necessary to centralize the offers on a unique marketplace accessible to all.
→ Facing a constantly increasing demand, it was necessary to present a vast selection of objects and to renew them regularly.
→ Facing a level of excellence whose bar is always raised higher, it was just as necessary to offer guarantees on authenticity, through the intermediary of professional experts and auctioneers.
From the observation of these necessities to the creation of a platform entirely dedicated to the passions of collectors and guaranteed by the certification of a professional expertise, there was only one step, and the founders of PrivateLot took it with success!"
