Brionvega unveils retro-modern TV

Brionvega Alpha TV

V12Design's Brionvega label has revealed the Alpha TV, a new concept it hopes will refresh typically stale TV design. The design recalls the look of 1960s and 1970s pseudo-futuristic TVs while taking advantage of newer technology. Chromed steel pipes recall the earlier look while also floating an LCD TV close to the viewer; rather than simply offer a weighted base, the Alpha has a DVD player with only the slot giving away its true purpose. The remote is also consciously reminiscent of larger controllers and matches the set's black, orange, or silver color in a way rarely seen with modern TVs.

While currently just a concept, the Alpha announcement follows the revival of the legendary Cuboglass CRT TV and suggests that the new low-profile set should become a production reality in coming months. V12 hasn't revealed where the set might appear in a launch, though the Italian firm's European home is a primary candidate. [via Retro to Go]
