Arsham Studio x Joya - Exoplanet Candle
Some artists cannot be confined to a single medium. They mix formats, play with materials. They innovate. Daniel Arsham is one such artist. He has built his career on breaking down the boundaries between sculpture, architecture, performance and fashion.
This limited edition collaborative piece between Arsham Studio and boutique fragrance and design studio Joya at first appears to be a perfectly formed porcelain planet, but is actually a candle in deconstructed form. The avant-garde sculpture requires its owner to inset a cotton wax into one of the two halves and to fill it from the accompanying canister of scented soy wax beads. The Joya-designed fragrance - with top notes of fig, a heart of jasmine and hyacinth, and a velvety drydown of cedarwood and amber - is exclusive to the artist's designs.
