The Moooi Blow Away Vase is a classic Dutch Royal Blue Delft porcelain vase that experienced something truly bizarre; it has been blown away by a powerful gush of wind. The wind motion becomes part of its features and its beauty also lays in the fact that it is bent but not defeated. Made of porcelain, the Blow Away vase is handcrafted with illustrations applied by hand, making each vase unique and exceptionally attractive.

Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren are the members of the Swedish design group Front.
Their works are based on common discussions, explorations and experiments and they are all involved in the projects from initial ideas to the final product.
Front's design objects often communicate a story to the observer about the design process, about the material it is made of or about conventions within the design field.
In their work they have assigned part of the making of design to animals, computers or machines.
They have made a constantly changing interior, created objects with explosions, robotic furniture and a range of furniture inspired by their fascination with magic.
