The whole is more than the sum of its parts.

My approach to eco design is to consider the system being designed as an interconnected whole which is also part of something larger. To do this we have to start thinking beyond the product, service or system. This should enable us to re-frame our thinking.


In my experience, all my values in life were shaped by time. Time gives me the option to act or observe. Experimenting with these factors gives me joy and purpose.


By using my ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning, I create an opportunity for my intuition to lead the way.


Asking questions and trying to figure out how to make any design simple and efficient are the basic principles. The beauty and power of holistic design is that it accelerates a more balanced world.

Holistic Approach

By Okke Hora Adema

Whichever system is designed, the care for environmental friendly materials, design efficiency and global impact should be carefully taken into account. Sometimes making small changes during the design phase can have a big environmental impact, and this is an important consideration in holistic design. The trick is to make design flexible and easy to maintain to reduce the need to make major changes in response to changing needs.

Personal development and self-awareness are playing an important role in accelerating the experience of holism.

Okke Hora Adema

I was born and raised in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In 2004 I received my master degree Industrial Design Engineering at Delft University of Technology. Since then I have designed products, interiors, websites, logo’s, visual presentations and more for various clients.

After seven years of intense work, in 2011, I decided to take a sabbatical for one year. I finished all projects and started to fulfill a big dream: travelling around the world with my wife and two children. It was an epic adventure that changed my life…

Technical Background

Innovation, awareness & sustainability.

A recent project I have created took almost three years and resulted in the invention of the Dream Machine. It’s a revolutionary astrological system based upon the most essential cycles of our solar system. The challenge was to make complex information simple and accessible.

In order to help people in living their dream we wanted to have an online tool, available for anyone, where you can understand your talents, qualities, intuition and more. Available 24 hours a day. The Dream Wear collection makes it easy to keep you focused on your dream. Click on the button below and have a look at ORIGIN:DREAM.


Design for good.

People around the world are working hard to make the world a better place to live. The work and effort they put in projects gives me the energy to do the best I can to do my part. At this moment I’m open to volunteering projects for non-profit and non-governmental organizations.

Contact me for a volunteering request here.
