Type H 70th Anniversary Van – resurrection

The project is a collaboration of Hungarian Designer David Obendorfer and his italian coworker Fabrizio Caselani. With the revival of the classic van they gave a a tribute to the italian design icon Flaminio Bertoni and his Citroën HY unveiled exactly 70 years ago. Meant as contemporary reinvention of the legendary van, packaged as a complete car kit and developed on the Citroën Jumper chassis.

The Type H 70th Anniversary Van will be produced by FC Automobili, using artisanal methods, as a limited series of 70 units in Italy.With the design Obendorfer and Caselani did not intend to copy the forms of the original model, but rather they aimed to capture the soul of the iconic vehicle, reinterpreting it through a nostalgic fiberglass “suit” which at the same time is deeply rooted in contemporary style. They were not allowed to use the original logo, but here, too, the designers had an idea…

The Type H 70th Anniversary Van is a fusion of direct references to the predecessor with modern solutions, combined with the reliability and the technological content of the current Citroën Jumper series.
