5th26 is a New York and Caribbean based design studio named after the crossing of Fifth Avenue and 26th Street in New York’s Flatiron. The brand designs and crafts objects for the home with a minimal and spirited aesthetic. The studio develops its wares in-house and in collaboration with artists and artisans in the United States and abroad.
Brandon Tang founded 5th26 in 2016 after a decade of working in fashion for both start-up and established brands. During this time, the designer has lived in China, Italy, and the U.S., and has had the opportunity to work with artisans who preserve the traditional values and qualities of their dedicated craft. These experiences inspired him to launch 5th26.
