How do you create an inspiring workplace? How does the space we work in influence our health? Can the workspace boost your creativity and well-being? To answer these questions we reached out to experts in the field. On a micro level, Peter Opsvik told us the story of his ergonomic chairs; on a macro—Rosan Bosch talked to us about designing workspaces for big corporate clients, including every kid’s favorite, Lego.
Speaking of spaces, it just so happens that the Polish accents in this issue are all about interiors. From homes (furniture start-up Tylko), to holiday retreats (Oskar and Zofia Hansen’s house in Szumin), to artist studios (Avant-garde Institute), we show how the country’s leading artists of the XXth century lived and worked, and how the new generation has the ambition to conquer the international markets with a clever mix of technology and design.

As designers, producers and vendors, we asked ourselves: how do we sell our goods in a modern and sustainable way? The answer is: through a platform that shares our values.
We do, becuase we care.
What we save, saves us.
We value timeless over trendy, few over many and plain over fancy. At every stage of the production process we aim to minimize waste and our environmental footprint, and maximize support for local community and suppliers. Less but better.
No middle-men. No seasons. No sales.
We charge our customers a single, fair, honest price. We have no middle-men and sell our products directly to you. We don’t do seasonal sales because our stock doesn’t become obsolete. It’s a part of respecting our clients and our own work.
Under one roof.
We believe that the best quality products can be made locally and be affordable to everyone. Most products available on Biosphe.re are crafted in the European Union with respect not only for the environment, but most importantly for their makers.
Less but better.
Biosphe.re stands for the inordinate power of good design. Our products are useful, honest and aesthetic, designed right down to the last detail and made from high-quality materials to be durable and long-lasting. Less but better.
Sustainable design and responsibility.
Biosphe.re generates as little waste as possible. As both vendors and makers, we know that all our choices have an environmental impact. We operate with that in mind, only choosing natural, sustainably sourced raw materials, components and packaging that are long-lasting and don’t create waste.
Be an activist.
We take our social responsibility seriously. Our mission is not just creating beautiful, ethically-made products, but also using the power of our business to give back. For every Biosphe.re product purchased, we donate 3% of our sales to support non-profit organizations around the world.
Respect your privacy.
Less algorithms, more human.
The more we use technology to communicate, the more we long for real-life human interactions. We don’t let algorithms replace our intuition. And our intuition is to sell products through Biosphe.re in a way without buying ads and in a way that respects our customers’ online privacy and personal data. We create our own content and deliver it in an organic way.
