My name is Ib Hartmann Berggreen, former Chief of Design at LEGO Toy Company. I am 68 years old and from Copenhagen, Denmark. For the last 19 years I have been running my own design company focusing on industrial design, product development and making pipes. Today I work full time on making pipes.
Hailing from the north I am inspired by the classic and new Nordic design. My pipes represent the simplistic, clean and aesthetic Nordic design, but I also experiment and try to push the boundaries with new forms and shapes to make the pipes my own.
In my time as a pipe maker I have been, and still is, in close contact with Danish pipe legends Tom Eltang and S. Bang. Being in close contact with such legends and combining that with my many years of design experience has given me the skills to become a pipe maker.
