Imagine there’s no countries/ It isn’t hard to do / Nothing to kill or die for / And no religion too. Some lines from Imagine a gigantic pop-song by John Lennon*. Territorial disputes and religion: reasons for war. For a long time the area around Estonia was an area of warm and cold wars. Estonian sculptor Mati Karmin has reused these weapons of war to create furniture: mines to be precise, in a steampunk kind of way.
Designer: Mati Karmin (1959)
