How does one accurately pay homage to American explorers, entrepreneurs, artists, and philosophers? The answer is simple, you convert a 19th Century Brooklyn rigging garage into the home of one of America's most coveted fragrance and design houses, Joya Studio.
Founded by Frederick Bouchardy, Joya Studio, produces evocative in-house fragrances — candles, perfumes, soaps, oils — and is the nose behind fragrances made for clients like A24, which is telling, because the experience of smelling a Joya Studio fragrance can tell a story all on its own.
Exoplanets are any planet or moon that orbits a star outside of our own solar system. Though there are over 3500 known exoplanets in the universe, little is known about them. This project imagines fictional exoplanets as a multi-sensory experience.
The Arsham Studio x Joya “Exoplanet” must be pieced together by you, creating a ritualistic experience each time you assemble and light the candle.
The scent was originally produced by Joya for use exclusively within Arsham Studio and Daniel Arsham's own international exhibitions. For the past several years, this scent has invisibly permeated Arsham's exhibitions across the world, and now it is contained within the specimen fill vessel.
