Classic 1960s Brionvega Doney TV reissued – in very limited quantities


If the Brionvega Alpha was  just a little too futuristic for you, how about getting your hands on a 1960s classic – the Brionvega Doney.

First seen in 1962, the work of Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper, this was benchmark TV technology in its day – the first TV with a transistor built in Europe. The limited edition 14-inch model upgrades things further, although the insides still leave a little be desired (no digital tuner and not HD-ready for example). But on the plus side, you get all the other basics, a stylish remote control and a choice of limited edition casing in chrome and orange, black or white.

100 of each available, numbered and laser-etched for authenticity, but not cheap at £1,400. Think of it as investing in a design classic.
