Visitors to the Artefact website can easily see everything that’s new; all content on the home page is organized in a timeline showing the newest content at the beginning. Navigating the timeline is all that’s necessary to see everything Artefact has done. Every piece of content opens directly on top of the timeline, meaning users don’t have to go to a separate page (and then back again) to view content.

In the past, Koreans kept themselves warm during winter by carrying hot stones against their bodies. Designed for mountain climbers, ST-ON was inspired by this legacy. When the stone-shaped units are fully charged they turn orange. The moment they are removed from the charger they start working. They can be applied on top of clothing like a patch, keeping you warm as you scale the mountain.
