During World War II and beyond, a number of Russian and German sea mines were built and used in the Baltic Sea and Gulf of Finland. Estonian artist Mati Karmin has repurposed these old and decommissioned mines into a variety of different furniture pieces ranging from fireplaces to chandeliers. You can find more information on the specific mines used here.
The range of works have resulted in art exhibits and a mine furniture company named Marinemine. At the official site you can find all of the different pieces of furniture Karmin has built from old sea mines. Some, like the bed are more sculptural than practical but all are interesting to see.
German submarine U-995 was a German Type VIIC/41 U-boat of the Kriegsmarine. She was laid down on 25 November 1942 by Blohm & Voss in Hamburg, Germany, and commissioned on 16 September 1943 with Oberleutnant Walter Köhntopp in command.
At the end of the war on 8 May 1945 she was stricken at Trondheim, Norway. She was surrendered to the British and then transferred to Norwegian ownership in October 1948. In December 1952 U995 became the Norwegian submarine Kaura and in 1965 she was stricken by the Royal Norwegian Navy. She then was sold for the symbolic price of one Deutsche Mark to Germany where she became a museum ship at Laboe Naval Memorial in October 1971
