The History of Arcarius

In Imperial Rome, “ARCARIUS” was the name given to the guardians of strong boxes – centurions, tasked with protecting valuables day and night.
In 2012, CEO Christian Perdomo set out to create an object that represented this tenacity and sense of total security.
His quest was defined by inquietude.
To him, it seemed nonsensical that luxury hotels continue to use poor quality safes, objects that are so unattractive, they are always hidden away in a wardrobe.
Drawing on a lifetime of experience in the security industry, Perdomo collaborated with designers, architects, engineers, artisans and experts in technology to redefine the hotel safe. Every element of ARCARIUS safes has a backstory.
