Vessel Floats is a float-therapy spa in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, with an emphasis on holistic well-being and mindfulness.

Order was tasked with developing an identity system that is honest to the history and benefits of sensory deprivation, but through a more contemporary lens.

The history of sensory deprivation floating starts with John C. Lilly's early documented studies in The Deep Self.

As a way to extend the brand language, we considered how the vibrations of a "float" could be represented. 

German scientist, Ernst Chladni, provided an early way of visualizing the effects of vibrations — most commonly using salt — which is the compound also found in float tanks.
