How we began

In 2018, Jean-Baptiste Fabre founded in Geneva, Switzerland, after having spent more than 15 years in the world of auction sales.

His passion for investments in arts and then auctions come from his ancestors, coming from a long dynasty of respected experts in 18th century Royal French furniture. He believes auctions bring new life to preloved items and at the same time, it brings fun and enjoyment while bidding for it. New opportunities are available on this market, for everyone, for every budget, everyday to those who have the right tools to select, sort and compare the offer.

So, with the vision to bring the confidence in people to bid and experience the thrill of the hunt itself, the way Jean feels, he built to share his learnings and expertise that is backed up with a cutting edge ecosystem.
