Are you ready to see explosive furniture? These extremely brutal and medieval furniture designs were created by one of most famous sculptors from Estonia, Mati Karmin. In almost all of his works he uses unconventional and innovative materials to create one-of-a-kind and mind blowing home accessories and furniture. What I have to share with you are some of Karmin's unusual furniture designs made from Soviet marines and naval mines. The Island Naisssar, located in the Gulf of Finland, a former military facility in the First and Second World War is the main source of materials for this creative minded Estonian sculptor's freaky yet astonishing designs. He created bathroom cabinets, chairs, tables, beds and even fireplace out of these metal scraps. To make it more usable at home he added beautiful details, glass surfaces and leather upholstery.

This unique coffee table is made of combined glass sheet and lengthwise halved mine-shell. It has legs of mock-ups of detonation horns placed into original detonation holes.

This is the item I liked the most from all of his designs, a chandelier made of a whole mine-shell on top and below on it are three hemispheres made of mine-shell as well. It has detonator like-shape light bulbs made of plexiglass.
