Estonian sculptor Mati Karmin has innovated a way for old Soviet naval mines to become usable furniture. From tables, to beds and even baby carriages, the rusted mines are recycled into steampunked home furnishings.

Unlike the traditional sculptor, Mati Karmin has previously created other war pieces; however, his recent works are so original and creative that it paves the way for newer and greater home furnishings. Being the product of once-explosive mines, the furniture now carries an emotional and historical element that will live on for decades.
