Next Generation Luxury Safes
The essential elements we find hotel room have been redefined by the luxury industry. Think of the coffee maker, the sound system, the television and the shower. Today, nothing less that the latest generation and most prestigious brand names will suffice in order to seduce a traveller whose concept of luxury is finely tuned to modern design aesthetics and cutting edge technology.
ARCARIUS expresses this zeitgeist in what has until now been an object overlooked by industrial designers and hotel managers – the hotel safe.
What is ARCARIUS?
ARCARIUS is a manufacturer of exceptionally attractive, high tech safes conceived for the sophisticated traveller. Incorporating Italian design, German engineering, fine craftsmanship and the most advanced security systems available, they elevate the hotel safe, so often hidden out of sight in a cupboard or wardrobe, to a design object that can be freely moved around the room. This sensation of ‘freedom’ instils a sense of confidence in the guest; confidence in the efficiency of the safe itself and in the management of the hotel.
Security is the most pressing issue in the world today. Customers of high net worth travel with valuable possessions, and as humans we often put enormous worth on objects that make us feel ‘complete.’ Research has told us that conventional hotel safes are simply not sufficiently secure. ARCARIUS has created a new benchmark in hotel safe security.
Security, Technology, Design. The three pillars of ARCARIUS
- Security. Our user-friendly locking system has a security level parallel to a bank. It is designed to elicit immediate responses if breached. Biometric identification is incorporated.
- Technology. The user is in constant real time communication with their safe, via a high-security app on their smart phone. Messages are sent in their own language, and are continuously monitored by reception staff.
- Design. The conventional, soulless form of a hotel safe has been disregarded. ARCARIUS safes feature noble materials, such as wood and leather, and fine craftsmanship. We can work with your design team to customise the safes to your hotel’s decor and interior architecture.
Who is ARCARIUS?
Christian Perdomo is CEO of ARCARIUS. Drawing on a lifetime’s experience in the safe manufacturing sector, he decided to embrace the need for a luxurious in-room safes in the hospitality industry.
“I belong to the second generation of a family dedicated to the security industry, starting with the old bank columns, then keys safes, then later electronic safes. A passion for innovation in security forms part of my DNA, as well as my love for art and design and an enormous interest in advances in technology.
When I was young I used to go with my father to visit customers and repair hotel safes. I loved playing with old knobs, turning them right and left, listening for the click and then turning the handle, waiting to see the ‘treasure’ inside.
I also love visiting museums, and art and design fairs like Art Basel, Salone de Mobile and technology events like CeBit. All these passions and interests meet in ARCARIUS, a project that has absorbed me for the past decade.”
