While MotoArt is turning vintage aviation parts into stunning fixtures, an Estonian sculptor named Mati Karmin is doing wonders with the Russian AGSB-type sea mines found off the coast of his homeland. One of the best-known sculptors of Estonia, Karmin began with his marine mine furniture project five years ago. He is giving a new life to the old naval mines as contemporary furniture units, which include desks, fireplaces, chairs, tables, bathtubs, toilets, aquariums, bar cabinets and LED chandeliers. Karmin uses mines as modules and the entire furniture series comprises only two existing basic forms of mines - the hemisphere and the cylinder.

Karmin adds value and appeal to his creations with beautiful hand-treated copper details, metal mesh, leather upholstery and granite and glass surfaces. No word on pricing, but we are not expecting such works of art to come cheap.
