For many years, the Philadelphia-born painter Stanley Whitney has been pursuing his own version of the modernist grid. He tackles his saturated canvases intuitively, letting each hue lead him to the subsequent. The resulting freehand grids evoke quilts whose threads have been gently tugged at on all sides, their once-even panels ballooning, their dividing lines suddenly wonky and free. Whitney’s latest solo exhibition, “There Will Be Song,” opens this month at Gagosian’s Grosvenor Hill gallery in London. It comprises 14 recent oil-on-linen works made in 2022 and 2023. In “By the Waters of Manhattan” (2022), Whitney stacks colours like misshapen bricks: a sunny yellow sits on a block of bubble-gum pink; beneath that may be a pockmarked green. You won’t be surprised to learn that Whitney listens to jazz while he paints. This show is polyrhythmic. What’s most enjoyable for the viewer is getting as close as possible to his canvases, where his brushwork declares itself plainly, dripping and zigzagging backwards and forwards, songs revealing their making. “There Will Be Song” is on view from March 30 to May 14, gagosian.com.

On April 4, the Italian fashion house Bulgari will debut its eighth hotel, this one in Tokyo. Occupying the fortieth to forty fifth floors of the Tokyo Midtown Yaesu skyscraper (also home to a slew of recently opened restaurants and shops) across from Tokyo Station, the 98-room property offers expansive views of Mount Fuji to the west and Tokyo Bay to the east. Much of the furniture was designed by the Italian architect Antonio Citterio, who focused on materials like local hinoki wood and Italian travertine. Traditional Japanese bamboo baskets hold the fresh flowers which can be placed in every room’s vestibule, while ceramic teapots and handmade vases inspired by Japanese kimono patterns add local touches elsewhere. The hotel’s eight-seat sushi counter, helmed by the three Michelin-starred chef Kenji Gyoten, overlooks a Japanese rock garden. On the Italian restaurant, led by Niko Romito (whose restaurant, Reale, in Abruzzo, also has three Michelin stars), Milanese-style risotto with saffron and linguine with lobster are the celebs of the menu. On the fortieth floor, the Bulgari Dolci pastry shop serves up profiteroles and almond-and-chocolate caprese cake. For guests looking for total leisure, there may be a ten,765-square-foot spa and indoor pool. Rooms from about $1,951, bulgarihotels.com.

The Antwerp-based architect and interior designer Vincent Van Duysen has collaborated with Gregg Cohenca, the American founding father of the performance wear line Jacques, on a set of functional objects for movement and meditation. Van Duysen and Cohenca each have every day meditation practices; in the course of the pandemic they were inspired to create design-focused, practical accessories to help them. The six-piece collection encompasses a meditation chair, a bo stick, a side table, a blanket, a block and a sand bag, all designed to mix with their user’s every day life. The chair — a picket stool that’s low to the bottom with an inclined seat, promoting strong posture — can even function an end table. A blanket made from an Italian wool silk mix acts as a support for the body when folded, but looks just as lovely as a throw. Cohenca has been using the solid oak blocks in his pranayama yoga practice — but after they’re not supporting his savasana, a haphazard stack of them might be mistaken for a totemic sculpture. Jacques Vincent Van Duysen Mindful Movement Objects can be found starting March 23, from $110, jacquesnyc.com.
