No, that's not bad grammar in the title -- Estonian sculptor Mati Karmin makes furniture out of Russian anti-submarine mines dating from WWII to the 1960's. You'd think using a core component with such a simple shape would only lend itself to a narrow variety of objects, but Karmin's developed fireplaces, armchairs, beds, bathtubs, desks, wardrobes, bar cabinets, toilets, chandeliers, baby carriages and more.
The depth of his book really has to be seen to be believed. Hit the jump for more, or check out Karmin's full collection here.
