Design Berlin Pipes
A selection of quality 9mm filter pipes made in Berlin, Germany. Formed in 1948 by Hubert Hartmann, Pfeifenstudio Hartmann was among the first factories in post-war Germany licensed to start pipe production after WW II. Pipe maker and designer Lothar Schirwitz, joined the company in 1954 and became the head manager of the pipe production at the end of the sixties. He helped to transform the company by introducing more modern designs, better quality materials and introduced the typical 9-millimeter filter system into their range of pipes. Around 1975 the brand name db - Design Berlin was adopted to underline the new image.
