"A dream looks like a dream until one begins to work ... Then it becomes something much bigger"
(cit. Adriano Olivetti)


Established in 2004, Optima Design is a multi-disciplinary design company that harnesses professionals from the yachting, industrial design, automotive and strategic communication industries.

We operate worldwide and support our clients in creating and developing cutting-edge products in new and innovative ways.

Optima Design carries projects through from conception to realisation.

We design working products that are carefully drawn and pass engineering and production monitoring tests.

We innovate to create the unexpected; to create products our clients love.


We design by understanding and discovering the needs of users in the first instance. We analyse the market and establish our target based on a period of intense research and planning.

It's always our strategy to work towards a long-term goal when designing a new product. We analyse history, context and consider sociological factors to ensure the correct positioning of the brand on the market, before we've even begun designing.

Our work involves mapping the evolution of our products - creating unique work that endures and takes its place in history. And we evaluate and consider the work of our industry colleagues and competitors.

And finally, we analyse suitable production methods to efficiently actualise our products, taking profitability planning into account.
