    49 years in the same job.
    4 generations of management.
    49 years of passion.
    Now a member of the cooperative.

    4 generations of management.

    The joinery in this place today could you tell a story or two.
    It was initially founded as a one-man business by Walter Reichenbach Snr back in 1951.
    Back then, quality mattered too.

    It expanded steadily – with happy customers, competent management and good employees.
    Walter Reichenbach and, after him, Toni Reichenbach ran the carpentry business and were synonymous with high quality carpentry for decades under the name Schreinerei Reichenbach and, since 2013, Room of Life AG.

    Toni Reichenbach, the long-time managing director of Room of Life AG, decided to pave the way to enable a younger generation
    to run the business. He continues to run Room of Life AG and has handed over the reins of the carpentry workshop at
    its current location to Room of Life GEN.


    Now a cooperative.

    In the summer of 2020, all the employees took over the existing joinery business as a cooperative. Every single one of them is integrated, involved and participates in the business.

    Room of Life can hold its own on the market with its cooperative principles, combining economic efficiency and sustainability into a harmonious whole.
    Carpentry has developed, changed and been perfected as a craft over time. Each and every one of us is a living embodiment of this craft and keeps apace with this development.


    We regard normality as standing still.
