As Helsinki was chosen as the World Design Capital of 2012, Arabia launched a special celebratory mug in honour of the title. In March a teaspoon with the same theme was released, but both products were only sold through the year 2012. Arabia’s designer Tove Slotte chose the artwork from Tove Jansson’s book Who will comfort Toffle? In the mostly black and yellow colour mug the inhabitants of Moomin Valley are seen dancing and celebrating in a park or a garden. Mug Hurray is considered a special mug, but it only has the basic stamp on the bottom.
