Brionvega is an Italian electronics company, established in Milan in 1945, now located in Pordenone, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy.
The company was founded in 1945 by Giuseppe Brion and engineer Pajetta. Initially called B.P.M. Company and manufacturing electronic components, the business became known as Brionvega in 1960. In the early 1960s, two unusually designed portable television sets, designed by Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper, were launched by Brionvega by the names "Doney" (1962) and "Algol" (1964).
In 1969 Brionvega released the "Cubo" television (production now ceased). This set was designed by Mario Bellini and became a classic of that era and is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. An updated version of this television was produced in 1992 with the same exterior casing but new electronics but this is now out of production.
