Issue Two is about stepping into the world of unique individuals, contemporary or historical, in a lot of different ways: quite literally by visiting their studios, or methaporically by exploring them through their work. Whatever the way, we were seeking sincerity, passion and thoughtfulness, and we found them. More than in the Inaugural Issue, in Issue Two we focused on shedding light on the work of the Polish artists who deserve international recogniction.
Faustine Steinmetz and 6a Architects invite us into their studios and speak at length about their creative process. The Italian duo Studiopepe talks about how they manage to stick to their distinctive, surrealist style while working on various commercial projects. Two very different Polish photographers are portrayed: Bownik, a contemporary photographer with a mysterious aura and a flair for scientific experiments, and Zofia Rydet, who took a unique approach to photographing children in post-war Poland. We also visit the modernist villa of Bohdan Lachert, one of the most prominent Polish pre-war architects, in Warsaw's Saska Kepa.
What is special about Issue Two is the way we, the Thisispaper Studio, share our thoughts on living a healthy and fullfiling life, with our Guide to Everyday Excercise and an introductory course of culturing your own Good Bacteria.

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. Isn’t it only natural?
The best quality for everyone.
Handmade in European Union.
We believe that the best quality products can be made locally and be affordable to everyone. All products available on Biosphe.re are crafted in the European Union with respect not only for the environment, but most importantly for their makers.
Sustainable design and responsibility.
All under one roof.
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.
Respect our customers.
More attention, less algorithms.
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 that respects our customers’ online privacy and personal data.
