ARTSY FARTSY

     The author and designer of the Marinemine furniture is Mati Karmin, whose career is characterised by an intense and remarkably versatile activity.

Fireplaces from mines :


Aquarium & chandelier : 


 Bed, closet, desk, boss chairs...



  The frame of the artpieces is a historical deep-sea mine of AGSB-type, made in Russia in 1942. It was a big galvanic deep-sea mine, equipped with “Blok” device and two contact electro-magnetic antennas. The upper antenna was kept steady by a buoy. The mine was used to fight submarines. It was still manufactured in the 50-ies.



 And even baby carriages & a lot more...


     Karmin’s mine-objects possess the obvious utility function, but also multifaceted interpretations. The value of minefurniture lies in its uniqueness, wit and ambiguity.
