Based in Barcelona, Barnerwas 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 harmful 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 Good Life is Welcome
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.
