Designed by Japanese artist Hajine Katagiri and it was issued in 2001 to mark the opening of Hermès headquarters in Japan.
Hermès headquarters are housed in a 12 story tower, which is located in the busy center of the Japanese capital in the commercial district of Ginza.
Inspired by a Japanese lantern, architect, Renzo Piano, enveloped the entire tower in glass block. At night the entire building is aglow from within, creating a spectacular sight indeed!
The tower houses a design workshop, museum, offices a rooftop garden and the boutique alone takes up all of six floors.
In 2006, I believe, a second tower was added perfectly mirroring the original structure.
