Mine furniture

15 Oct

Sculptor Mati Karmin is overhauling Russian AGSB-type sea mines found off the coast of Estonia turning them into furniture such as desks, fireplaces, chairs, tables, bathtubs, toilets, aquariums, bar cabinets and LED chandeliers. To lose the scrap metal vibe Karmin then adds beautiful hand-treated copper details, metal mesh, leather upholstery and granite and glass surfaces – likely to be ball breakingly expensive (source via notcot).

 

For me I think this is another one of those things where I love the concept of the work more than the pieces themselves. What do you think?

    Yes. I think Mati Karmin’s concept is a great. But, I also think the final result is less elegant. So, if Mati Karmin want to make some restoration, I think the furniture will be great.
