Design gallery coming to the former Matsugen space on Church

Spanish interior designer Nacho Polo has taken the former Matsugen space — Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Japanese soba restaurant that closed in 2011 — at 241 Church, aka 66 Leonard, across from The Bean.

The store is scheduled to open in winter 2022.

The space is 7000 square feet and will feature “contemporary, iconic, limited edition and collectible works from established and emerging designers along with pieces from the private Art collection of Founder/Creative Director Nacho Polo @nachopolo and Director Robert Onuska @onuska.”

The building — the Textile Building — was designed in 1901 by Henry J. Hardenbergh, the architect behind the Waldorf-Astoria and the Dakota.



  1. Looks aesthetically beautiful.

  2. Makes sense. Good use of the space. It will be nice to have the lights back on
