The first platform

ecosystem for

the art world

Manage both your artworks and your professional network in one single system.

Fernis is the first tool ever to combine inventory management with a social platform. Whether you’re a gallerist, collector or other art professional, you’ll be able to securely store all data about artworks, optimize workflows and stay in-sync with updates from your network.

Here, you’ll have all information about art to serve you and your clients. No more lost folders, missing provenance and repetitive registrations - but more time to focus on art itself, on the first platform uniting the art world.

For the Art World

Fernis is for all stakeholders in the art world

Fernis is all about facilitating everyday tasks, while keeping information about art safe - for now and for the future.

The more sectors represented, the more valuable an ecosystem, as each participant will be able to contribute with knowledge and services. The first launch of Fernis will focus on Gallerist Users.

Galleries

Tired of switching between paper notes and digital non-syncing systems? Fed up with multiple tools to keep track of clients, artworks, sales and exhibition preparations?

With Fernis, you'll have everything at hand. Register your inventory and gather all data and documents here – transfer to your client as a helpful service when they buy an artwork. Plan exhibitions, handle sales, and stay in touch with your network.

Artists

Register the artwork before its journey starts to attest its authenticity. Share and handover to galleries or collectors. Store data on shows and other relevant information to build value. Update your gallerists and collectors with news.

Collectors

Get artworks and their valuable data transferred to you when purchasing. Secure provenance, authenticity statements and price development - yet stay anonymous. Get relevant information updated from galleries and artists - no need to use time on registering what your network already did.

You

Fernis is a platform for all parts of the industry - eventually, all sectors and services related to art will be represented as part of the ecosystem. We're looking forward to welcoming museums, art fairs, institutions, logistics, finance and more.

The System

A system to create accessible, trustworthy data

Inventory management, CRM, secured provenance, a social platform and more - everything in one system.

When users in your professional network updates relevant data, you'll be notified automatically. This will save you time and typing.

Management

Inventory, exhibition planning, CRM and sales tools. Automated syncing for all users when master data is updated by a trusted entity.

Artwork

Authenticity

Get professionals to validate the authenticity of your artwork. An equivalent to the vulnerable physical art certificate of today.

Security

All data is securely stored in order to save artwork provenance and cultural heritage. Supports compliance with regulatory directives.

Relations

Establish and maintain relations with professionals and clients on the social platform. Update your network with news. Seek out or provide art related services.

Documents

Link important documents to the artwork – manuals, condition reports, personal artistic dedications, photos of the artwork in different locations etc.

Provenance

The artwork’s ownership history is attached to the artwork’s digital ID – its provenance follows along when it switches hands.
