Founded and directed by Anne-Cécile Worms, Art2M produces and develops prototypes and connected objects, identified and designed thanks to its active watch over a network of almost 600 labs worldwide. The company remains on the cutting edge of digital fabrication through its specialized media: Makery.info. It also lends its knowledge and network of experts to corporations by providing workshops, rapid prototyping and temporary on-site labs.

Art2M coproduces digital artworks, connected objects and innovative materials. Among its exclusive coproductions is Water Light Graffiti, a LED surface that reacts to water, which has already been patented and continues to enjoy commercial success around the world.

Finally, Art2M opens its catalogue of artworks to collectors through an online platform dedicated to the sale of contemporary, modern and digital art. This platform will allow rapidly emerging artists who are currently underrepresented on the art market to have their works become accessible via online sales.

The total investment of €500,000 will allow Art2M to intensify its R&D efforts and establish itself overseas, particularly in the US and China.
