Estonian sculptor Mati Karmin makes furniture from old naval mines found off the coast of his homeland:
Northern coast of Estonia and especially the islands, wich during the years of occupation were an almost inaccessible border zone for the common including heaps of corroded mine shells, wich are basically spheres with holes, spireks and shackles.[...]
Karmin uses mines as modules. The entire furinture series is composed of only two existing basic forms of mines - the hemisphere and the cylinder. With great delight, he has concocted utility articles of diverse forms, resulting in armchairs, writing desk, bed, toilet, cupoard, bathtub, swing, fireplace...By the hand of the artist the militaristic metallic scrap has become the design furinture of remarkably modern appearance.
