These Are Mine(s)! Marinemine Furniture

One thing I loved about the movie “Despicable Me” (it’s a kids movie, but if you haven’t seen it you should, it’s a gem of silly humor for all ages) were the kids’ beds, made out of bombs. For those who haven’t seen it, here is a screenshot.

Now, being a lover of all things that explode, I wanted to know if there were people who actually made stuff like this. And guess what? There are. Marinemine Furniture, a “functional art” project by the Estonian Mati Karmin, repurposes the casings of old Russian sea mines by turning them into interesting furniture pieces.  The result may not look like the bomb beds from Despicable Me, but it’s still pretty damn awesome!

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
