Furniture from Weapons – A Peaceful Use of Weapons



Furniture from weapons is a project started after more than 30 years of civil war, ending in 1998, the Cambodian gouvernment destroyed 125,000 weapons across the country. In this time a small arms specialist with the European Union, and British artist Sasha Constable, saw an opportunity, and decided to create The Peace Art Project Cambodia (PAPC) in November 2003. The Peace Art Project Cambodia was a sculpture project turning weapons into art as expressions of peace. In Cambodia this is the most beautiful way to get rid of weapons – transform them in furniture. From these pictures this furniture doesn’t look to comfortable, but for a good cause they are excelent.

For some reason I doubt we'll be seeing any of those AK-47 chairs at Pier 1 Imports.

That chair would look good in my living room. However, the 30 Ak's it took to make it, would look even better in my safe.

Better to melt them down and make something useful.

Like more guns to protect themselves.

seeing those pics of weapons being burned reminds me of the book burnings the Nazis did. They are trying to villify weapons

The destruction of guns is supporting arms dealers.

I have seen a pic of another chair made out of AKs, it was pretty damn cool.

If they were completly screwed before they were artful furniture.....then ok....but if they were made from functioning guns......

Just a thought...What's to stop some enterprising person from forming a company to dispose of weapons that have been collected by .govs and police forces around the world? Offer low bigs for the contract, take posession of the firearms, ?, profit!

(Gonna need a bigger safe...)

That is sad.


However, for the most part, there's a shit load more where those came from, and they make a shit load more of them EVERY DAY. Ha ha!!!!!!

That's some pretty cool art actually. That rocking chair is tight.

I would like to furnish my house with that.
What's up with Bugs Bunny and the prosthetic leg?

I'd rather have the guns, but some gun furniture is cool too. There's no shortage of shitty foreign guns. There's just a shortage in my bank account to purchase the shitty guns

For about the 10th time, how many starving people could the proceeds of those parts kits sold to U.S. firearms
enthusiasts feed? thousands of meals is my guestimate.
