High Quality Computer Eyewear, Spain
Barcelona, Spain November 28, 2018 – Barner Brand, creators of stylish blue-light blocking eyewear, has launched their latest collection on Indiegogo InDemand after getting over 2600% funded on Kickstarter. Called Barner 2.0 – The Ultimate Computer Glasses, the collection follows up on a successful debut collection launched in 2017 – the upgraded Barner glasses offer improved blue light blocking technology, new materials, upgraded flexible fit, and a sunglass clip-on option – all offered at a new lower price point. Apart from an evolved Blue Light Blocking protection, Barner’s latest collection sets out to be the most stylish and wearable alternative on the computer eyewear market today.
The new collection feature a rubberized texture for a better grip on nose and ears, while flexible hinges and temples make sure the new Barner 2.0 glasses adapts to all face shapes without sliding down. Using the the latest lens technology, Barner’s lenses blocks 40% of the harmful spectrum and 100% of blue light at 410 nm. After launching their first Kickstarter campaign in 2017 and shipping Barner glasses to backers in over 62 countries, the brand let the customer feedback from them guide the changes for the new collection.
“Feedback on our first collection was great overall and we received some valuable notes on how to further improve – along with some upgraded smaller details, many simply wanted a more affordable option, but with the same great quality and design. We took that challenge on, and are now able to offer Barner glasses at an improved price point, without skimping on our trademark quality,” says co-founder Eduardo Gaya.
Barner pressed down the price by replacing the acetate frame material with a lightweight polycarbonate frame – weighing only 0.8 oz, it’s a flexible and sturdy option offering the same quality and look, at a more competitive price point.
Barner was founded in 2017 by Eduardo Gaya and Ramón Perez. Before founding Barner, Edu spent years working in the digital space, including work for companies like Samsung and Google. Ramon founded his first start-up while working at Accenture as a Management Consultant, but now works full time at Barner together with Edu. The Barner 2.0 collection was launched on Kickstarter in October 2018 – it got fully funded in under 15 hours, and ended in November with over 6000 backers on board.
