History & Philosophy
LIVING IS SPACE AND SECURITY
Coming home; surrounded by values for which one has consciously decided. Here one feels free and secure. For generations, my family has dedicated itself to the noble material wood, which we process with great appreciation in the ANREI workshops in the Upper Austrian Mühlviertel.
Genuine wood - we select it with great care and process it with perfect craftsmanship to create furniture with character and high standards of design and value. These pieces of furniture bring their owners many years of pleasure.
Real values, forever.
That is my conviction!
At ANREI, form never serves the spirit of the times or an end in itself, but is an expression of character, aspiration and honesty: nature itself is our model. Timeless, beautiful, genuine ANREI.
ANREI is not only committed to the employees in the company, but also to people and organisations from the region who are dependent on support (Förderzentrum Waldhausen, SOS Children's Village Rechberg). Whenever there are celebrations and ANREI appears as a congratulator, regional specialities as a gift are a matter of course as a thank you.
The trained eye recognizes the precision of craftsmanship in the slender, clear processing of solid wood. Connections interlock with one another to an accuracy of a tenth of a millimetre, and exact milling on fronts characterises the furniture's appearance. The results are timeless masterpieces with value and character.
ANREI combines real craftsmanship with the latest technology. The knowledge of the carpenter's craft, which has grown over generations, is brought to a new level with the precise application of the latest production technologies.
ANREI has been refining the natural material wood into furniture of the highest quality since the beginning. The selection of the best logs, the right time to harvest, the most sustainable methods of surface treatment - ANREI's sound, grown knowledge of materials and technologies creates "real" furniture with personality and character.
The liveliness of a forest edge shows the design claim of ANREI. We select the woods for our furniture with great care, let ourselves be inspired by their natural growth and uniqueness - and do our utmost to give shape to their natural beauty.
ANREI stands for the resource-saving use of raw materials. Surface treatment with water-soluble lacquers or refined vegetable oils that is close to nature are just two examples of our strict requirements for ecology and health. ANREI was the first European manufacturer to be awarded the Eco Audit in 1996! Completely free of harmful substances, our furniture has always provided a pleasant room climate full of warmth and life.
ANREI was founded in 1894 by master carpenter Anton Reisinger in the Mühlviertel community of Pabneukirchen. In these more than 125 years a lot has been achieved:
