Driven by balance and warmth, Octave is a wellness studio built for the needs of busy, working professionals. Headquartered in Midtown, Octave’s new therapy, coaching, and classroom spaces were designed by our friends at Studio Tack. The meditative space is complete with original works by Dan Covert and Sayan Ray, which act as subtle nods to symbols in the psychology world.

“The art echoes Octave's branding elements by using organic forms and warm color palettes. There are subtle nods to symbols in the psychology world such as how the use of organic textural forms and automatic line art evoke a sense of Rorschach tests. ”
“The artwork is abstract in a way that evokes modernist abstraction but contemporary in a way that feels welcoming and unpretentious. These dichotomies underscore two important aspects of Octave's mission—to destigmatize mental health and make mental health care as accessible and proactively sought out as physical healthcare.”
“The art is really the only conversation that is happening in our waiting room. Privacy is important, and patients and therapists don't really converse in the open spaces. The art on the wall provides a sort of silent conversation that allows our clients to enjoy the quiet, without feeling that sense of emptiness. ”
