Born in 1978, Dirk Heinemann grew up on a small farm near Hannover, Germany. As an adult, he started work as a carpenter where he displayed a natural ability for the craft. Wanting to develop this new passion further, Dirk began studying product design. His furthered education would serve both him and future Heinemann pipe owners well.
While engaged in product design studies, Dirk desired to delve into the hobby of pipe smoking and crafted his first pipe shortly thereafter. These first pipes lead to a few others for himself and his friends. What started as an experiment developed into a lifelong passion.
Since 2011, he has been self employed as a furniture designer and custom pipe maker. The intrigue and challenge of creating something both beautiful and functional is the drive behind Dirk Heinemann’s distinctive pipes.
