Few brands evoke the feeling of a long stroll in the Mediterranean sun as strongly as Octaevo. Sure to spark your wanderlust, this is a brand that incorporates the beauty of travel into all that they do.
To some extent, describing Octaevo as an original brand feels like an under-statement. Their focus on pouring story, meaning and Barcelonian energy and soul into all of their pieces really shines through. From bright, bold paper vases to captivating trinket trays, there’s a lot to love here.

Octaevo is a brand that is based out of a studio in Barcelona and, from the vivid colours to the cool textures, ties to the Mediterranean are instantly clear. In fact, Octaevo’s Mediterrean roots go even further than this.
Founder Marcel Baer describes the brand as “a platform to showcase Mediterranean talent” and the stories behind each creation are an integral part of Octaevo.
Just a quick browse through Octaevo’s Journal will fill your head with stories of art, adventure and history.
The name Octaevo comes from the Latin word for wind - "Octa" - because of the winds that are so common across the Mediterranean, “Evo” from the medium between time and eternity and “O” from the coastline, an indication of journey. Mythology is also a key element of their brand.
When looking at the history of Octaevo, it’s clear that there is meaning to be found everywhere. A purchase from Octaevo is an investment in an entire worldview - one that protects stories from across the Mediterranean.
With Octaevo’s production, the attention paid to every detail is clear. First, they source the finest materials- opting for eco-friendly options where possible, and then they craft their products in a series of workshops.
As well as their staple pieces, Octaevo craft bespoke, personalised pieces on demand.
