Old Sea Mines Repurposed Into Furniture

Written by

 

During World War II and beyond, a number of Russian and German sea mines were built and used in the Baltic Sea and Gulf of Finland. Estonian artist Mati Karmin has repurposed these old and decommissioned mines into a variety of different furniture pieces ranging from fireplaces to chandeliers. You can find more information on the specific mines used here.

The range of works have resulted in art exhibits and a mine furniture company named Marinemine. At the official site you can find all of the different pieces of furniture Karmin has built from old sea mines. Some, like the bed are more sculptural than practical but all are interesting to see.
