Other furniture makers might say that their work is the bomb, but few can say that their creations are actually made from bombs. Estonian sculptor Mati Karmin is the exception – his mind-blowing furniture is crafted from recycled sea mines. Karmin reclaims the mines from the shores of Naissaar, an island located in the Gulf of Finland and turns them into everything from chairs to desks to fireplaces to even baby prams.
