As of June 2009, TEAMS has won 200 iF Product Design Awards alone. History: In 1956 Hans Erich Slany founded Slany Design in Esslingen, Germany. At this point he approached Robert Bosch GmbH with his ideas for power tools housed in plastics, a revolutionary idea that would make tools lighter, reducing the incidence of repetitive strain injury in workers. This idea also reduced the incidence of electric shocks to users. To train their engineers and commemorate a traveling European exhibition called "Making Work Easier: Ergonomics for Power Tools", Bosch published a book based on Slany's recommendations: "The influence of Ergonomics on the Design of Power Tools". TEAMS still manages the visual brand language of Bosch Power Tools even today.
