  • After the successful market launch of a series of electric stimulation therapy devices we appreciate the feedback of Mr. Ulrich Burr, CEO Keytec GmbH:

    daniels + erdwiens delivered a perfect design-result. Furthermore the agency delivered a service which goes far beyond design-work. Besides a precise, reliable and quick advice in all structural questions about the development process, d+e surprised with a perfectly working network starting with mechanical engineering, prototypes up to tooling and series production. Getting in design-management tasks, they also operated this network smoothly and with an amazingly short time to market. I can unrestrictedly recommend the consultancy. Whoever wants to know more about my experiene with d+e is welcome to contact me personally.

  • At the IFA in Berlin we enjoyed the presentation of ready-for-market-launch new flagship espresso centers we designed for Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH. Besides improvements in terms of functionality and an almost complete genuine metal housing we developed each brand due to its specific design-DNA. According to the target group definition, the SIEMENS EQ.8 shows a more puristic, clear and architectonical face whereas the BOSCH Veroselection shows softer, fluent transitions and a more family oriented Design.

    This adds a new milestone to the more than 12 years lasting cooperation with Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH. Since the year 2000 we are developing the design-concepts for the complete product range in the successful business field of automatic espresso centers.

    Another highlight for us on IFA was the big presence of the steam Iron SIEMENS TS20 which we designed a couple of years ago. BSH Inhouse Design created new freshness with new colour- and material-schemes.
