Vauen: Diplomat Smooth (2) (9mm)

Product Number: 002-457-2032

Markus Bruckner is freelance industrial designer/artist who has worked with Vauen before, having designed the sleek, modernist V Series pipe. Like the "V", the Diplomat is a Bruckner-designed, one-shape special series with a smooth, minimalist theme. It's a modified straight Billiard, substantial, yet very streamlined. To my eye, it appears as if Bruckner may have taken a Streamline Moderne inspiration, creating a shape of smooth mass and implied momentum, yet rendered it with an even greater, Danish Modern degree of simplicity. (Streamline Moderne itself being a stripped-down, more dynamic revision of Art Deco.) Again like the V series, the Diplomat comes in its own special presentation tin.
