Based in Barcelona, Barner was founded in early 2017 by two friends. After living their lives totally immersed in the digital world, they had identified a problem that was not only affecting them, but millions of people all around the globe: overexposure to blue light.
As hard workers and technology lovers, their eyes couldn’t withstand the long hours spent every day in front of screens. They wanted to find a solution that would protect their eyes and improve their quality of life without sacrificing their style. After realizing that current solutions on the market weren’t good enough, they decided to create their own.
The way we live, work, play, and communicate is changing every single day with the rapid advance of technology, and this is why we want to be more than just a tech gadget company. We want to build a brand and a community that supports the constantly evolving lifestyles of the digital generation, and makes them feel understood and accepted.
We believe that all companies should be more than just a company; they should have a soul, too. This means that they not only focus on doing right by their consumers and developing great products, but that they hold their values close, stand up for what they believe in, and give back to the community. We strive to be a company with soul every single day; we aim to help people live lives that are as vibrant and fun as they are functional, and we dream of building a world where technology and sustainability go hand in hand.
At Barner, we offer products that enhance and improve your digital life.
We develop each one of our products with the highest standards of quality. Our focus on innovation, design, and comfort gives our glasses the functionality and style that you need in the digital age.
We love what we do, and we love building products for you.
Barner is named after Barcelona, or “Barna”, to the locals.
"Barners" is our way of referring to all the people that, in one way or another, are connected to Barcelona. Not because they live there, but because they live the Barcelona lifestyle wherever they are.
A Barner is someone who is full of positivity, energy, and an appreciation of the beautiful world around them; someone who lives the good life.
Are you ready to become one?
Edu & Ray met back in 2014 in Bali, where they randomly ended up staying together on the floor of a mutual friend's house. After the trip they each went their own way- Edu in Ireland and Singapore working for Google and Samsung, and Ray in Japan and Colombia working for Accenture.
A few years, their paths crossed again, and they realized that despite their different backgrounds, they have the same entrepreneurial spirit. This spirit was inspired by the city of Barcelona, where they returned after many years living abroad.
After hours and hours spent behind their computer screens, Edu & Ray realized there was something they could do about it, and so, Barner was born.
