Our Story

From our studio in Barcelona we explore the wonders of the Mediterranean in search of enchanting stories to inspire thoughtful design objects for contemporary living.

We believe in true originality, in style as a reflection of personality and that details make the difference. Each piece is made to be held close, designed to inspire and to brighten up your day to day. Our stories unfold in their own time. Make them your own.

Our Philosophy

We seek to surround ourselves with things we love. Creating objects with meaning, pieces that resonate with our soul.

Everything we do, we do with passion and care. We choose materials for their beauty, purity and honesty. Striving for a perfect balance between state-of-the-art technology and craftsmanship.

Honouring the past we pursue intangible experiences, embracing new perspectives and welcoming the future. Connecting with people.

Our Founder

This project started with my family album. Images of my father in his late 20s, working on the high sea surrounded by the wind and the waves. Black and white memories of him deep sea diving and exploring the unknown. The sea was his passion and his stories were full of adventures.

From my mother I have inherited many hours of Super 8 footage, documenting her family trips in the early 60s. The jet-age was just about to change the world, and we see them traveling along the Mediterranean coast from Rome to Athens, Beirut until Tel Aviv... idyllic captions of a time long past.

Why I Started OCTAEVO

Fascinated by the Mediterranean’s vivid colours, ancient philosophy and mysterious myths, my products are designed to take you on an inspiring voyage. Let the journey begin.
