For the third impression of "Pocket Squares as Works of Art" Hermès, a manufacturer of luxury goods, invited the artist Hiroshi Sugimoto. This meeting between contemporary art and traditional craftsmanship was shown for the first time in the Museum der Kulturen during Art Basel.

It is regarded as the Nobel Prize for Art.
