Go to buy a TV, and you’re pretty much faced with a mass of androgynous blinking plasma screens. All function and nil design. Thankfully, there is another option. The stunning Algol portable TV, designed by Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper in the early ’60s. It’s managed to retain the original’s striking design but comes equipped with the latest technology. Features include a black matrix tube for outstanding picture quality, broadband loudspeaker, 100 storable programmes, AST automatic search, video input and the obligatory headphones output. It’ll cost you £470, and sit pretty in your home.
