Dawid Augustyn - Founder and Managing Director
With Namibian - South African roots, leading to Dawid's unique, holistic and meticulous approach to design, ESTABLISHMENT was created. "Home tells the story of who you are and should be a collection of what you love". Comfort is the perfect reading lamp and quality chair. "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten".
It is a beautiful thing when career and passion come together. Great passion for design, has lead Dawid to head up ESTABLISHMENT and subsequently to design a line of original contemporary design furniture, lamp's and accessories, launched from Cape Town. Under the label DA Design.
