    Brionvega is music to your ears and magic for your eyes. With products that offer incomparable sound and style, the cult Italian brand merges design, lifestyle and technology to create expressive products and exceptional listening experiences.

    Brionvega goes down in the history books of Italian design. All eyes were on Italy in the 1960s – an era that heralded a new age in industrial design – as Italian designers challenged the conventions of traditional living. Influenced by new materials, popular culture and mass-media imagery, Italian designers looked to the expressive possibilities of styling, using new materials, vibrant colours and fun, youthful forms. The result was revolutionary products that were futuristic in the 1960s and timeless today.

    Working with renowned designers, Brionvega has always created products that synthesise aesthetic pleasure, ease of use, modern technology and timeless design. Two of its earliest classics include Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper’s portable television sets Doney (1962) and Algol (1964), and Mario Bellini’s Cubo (1969) television set, which is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. 

    Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni designed the personality-filled Radiofonografo in 1965. Intended to make technology feel friendlier and more humanistic, the handmade cabinet has an arrangement of knobs, speakers and dials to evoke a face, “like a musical pet.”

    Today’s Radiofonografo has a radio and turntable and still exudes retro charm and excellent sonic definition. The speakers can be positioned in several possible combinations depending on the environment (over the central body for listening to the radio; on the sides for vinyl records; detached and place around the room for stereo sound), and castors make the unit easily moveable. A numbered (1–100) limited edition of Radiofonografo celebrates the centenary of Achille Castiglioni’s birth.

    Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper’s Radio.cubo has been reinvented without losing its characteristic identity and personality. Designed by more than half a century ago, the cult object has more colour and technological functions, including DAB/DAB+ or FM, and connects with Bluetooth and AUX smartphone, tablet or PC.

    WEARiT by Michael Young is also based on a 1960s Brionvega icon. The portable Bluetooth speaker has a comfortable and elegant carry bag, and all the modern conveniences for today’s on-the-go lifestyle: a hands-free microphone to answer calls in speakerphone; powerbank to recharge smartphones; and the possibility to connect two WEARiT’s in wireless mode for stereo sound.

    Brionvega’s products will undoubtedly put a smile on your dial with their revolutionary styling, outstanding functionality and exceptional sound quality.
