This yellow mug called Office was manufactured from 1996 to 2002. Exceptionally many sources were used designing this mug. The original artwork is found in Tove and Lars Jansson’s comics #16 Conscientious Moomin and #19 Moomin Winter, Lars Jansson’s #22 Moomin’s Lamp and Tove Jansson’s comics #07 Moomin Builds a House and #08 Moomin Begins a New Life. The images are separated from each other using drawings of scissors and paintbrushes, honouring the appearance of the original comic strips.
