I posted on the Brionvega TS522 portable radio a while back. Now here’s the perfect companion, the Brionvega Doney TV. It is, of course, way expensive (edit: apparently not, around $300 actually, thanks sean) and way hard to get a hold of. And if you’re looking for something even more future-retro, there’s also this concept (if that’s the remote laying there, I’m sold.
Here’s another shot of the TS522 for good measure…So Rams-esque:

usually Brionvega is a rather pricy manufacturer, even in EU that tv is above 1000 €. You can check it directly on Brionvega website http://www.brionvega.tv/
My uncle used to have both the TV, but I think it was the Algol model, and the portable radio (bought back in the ’70s)…
Talking about stylish tv what about the mini LCD designed by Fukasawa for plusminuszero ( http://tinyurl.com/cg7s44 )? I saw a few of them exhibited at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, and I couldn’t stop drooling…. he, he, he

I wonder why they decided to change the original design and chrome-ify it. I could have done without.

So that radio was designed by Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper. Sapper also designed the IBM Thinkpad (the first one) and the Tizio Lamp for Artimede. He’s got a new desk lamp, the Halley, at http://bit.ly/5OoIP which I’m totally digging. He also consulted for Samsung on this beauty, http://bit.ly/gNXTL. That’s all I’ve got on Sapper. He’s designed some really great looking pieces.
