what we do

ARTEFAKT DESIGN

ARTEFAKT design is an internationally active design studio with over thirty years of experience in the design and implementation of new product ideas. More than 240 design awards confirm the quality and continuity of our work.
with our team of 15 people we shape the identity of brand and product and create innovative, user-centred and strategic solutions for end customers and manufacturers.

REDUCE TO IDENTITY

in a rapidly growing competitive environment, the identity of brand and product plays a decisive role in economic success. our perspective is on the product.
design identity is created through formal reduction and concentration on the essential.

BUILDING & BIKES

at first glance, artefakt serves two very different product segments. products at the interface to architecture have been a focus of product development from the very beginning. since 2006, we have also been passionately developing products for the bicycle world.

the unusual combination has a high creative potential and allows our team the greatest possible variety and space for renewal.
the design process results in a maximum “cross knowlegement process” – the fields of work enrich each other through their specific technologies, working methods and distribution channels.
