Frank Gehry’s Winton Guest House going up for auction

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Frank Gehry’s Winton Guest House going up for auction.


The University of St. Thomas in Minnesota is home to the Frank Gehry-designed Winton Guest House, and it’s soon putting the house up for auction, with a slight catch: you buy it, you move it.

Commissioned by Mike & Penny Winton in 1982 for their Lake Minnetonka property, and completed in 1987, the house has already been moved once: the Wintons sold their property in 2002 and the buyer donated the house to the University in 2007, with the provision that it be moved.

It was divided into eight sections for its 110-mile move in 2008 and later renovated on the new spot, a 180-acre site at the university’s Daniel C. Gainey Conference Center in Owatonna, Minnesota.

The Owatonna land was purchased last year by a health services company, and while the university kept ownership of the house, it agreed to move it once again, with an August 2016 deadline.

The modern and contemporary design auction house Wright is set to handle the house’s auction on May 19.

According to the university, the 2,300-square-foot house comprises five geometrically shaped rooms that surround a pyramid-shaped living room.

David Yurman opens NYC flagship

David-Yurman-Soho-Boutique

Fine jewelry and watch brand David Yurman has opened a second New York Store in the city’s SoHo district.

Opening doors to customers Wednesday, the 2,000-square-foot space is located in the Cast Iron Historic district, inside a 19th century building featuring a trompe l’oeil mural by artist Richard Haas.

And the location is something of a nostalgia trip for Yurman:

“I cut my teeth as a sculptor and an artist in this neighborhood – it truly is home for Sybil and me,” explained the designer and CEO.

“What was the epicenter of gallery culture in New York has since evolved into a vibrant, international destination. We’re thrilled to be a part of this community’s past, present and future.”



Alongside the brand’s jewelry and watch lines the new store also contains two bronze angels crafted by Yurman himself (pictured above), which reference his other direct-welded sculptures.

The interior design touches include live-edge wood surfaces and metal finishes, as well as plenty of paintings by his wife Sybil. The store will also stock a selection of exclusive pieces created especially for the boutique.

Nestle to ‘hire’ 1000 robots to sell Nescafe in Japan

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Nestle to ‘hire’ 1000 robots to sell Nescafe in Japan.

 
Nestlé, the world’s largest food and drink conglomerate, has bought 20 humanoid robots to help sell coffee machines in its stores across Japan.

Nescafé will use the humanoid robot “Pepper” to sell Nescafé Dolce Gusto and Nescafé Gold Blend Barista coffee machines in home appliance stores.

Through voice and emotion recognition technology, the robot is able to analyze consumers’ feelings by reading their facial expressions and listening to their tone of voice.

The machine will even be able to hold a conversation with the customers!



“The dream to create an advanced consumer experience with Pepper is now coming true,” said Masayoshi Son, Chairman and CEO of SoftBank Corporation, producer of the robot. “We hope that by providing people the opportunity to interact with a robot whilst shopping, we can help create experiences of wonder and delight for consumers.”

Pepper was first unveiled in June of this year by SoftBank and has been working in the mobile carrier’s locations ever since.

He will make his Nestlé debut this December in around 20 home appliance stores, with the company planning to use the robot in around 1,000 stores in Japan, its biggest market, by the end of 2015.
