Lubly – The workhorse
The iconic vehicles of Eastern Europe on your desk!
We cannot only thank our Polish friends for the Polski Fiat, but for the boxy Żuk, too. On top of that, the ambulance vehicles used by the Hungarian Ambulance Service between 1960 and 1987 were also produced in Poland, in a car factory called Nysa. The practical Żuk was a popular choice amongst entrepreneurs, craftsmen and small producers, and was even used by the Hungarian Fire Brigade. The same as with many other cars produced in the socialist era, inventive Hungarians transformed the Żuk, too: they replaced the original three-gear gearbox with a four-gear one, and in many cases transformed the car into a pickup truck by “cutting” the boxy trunk (despite the fact that the model had a pickup version).

The CHROMIEZ collection brings to life the emblematic four-wheeled vehicles of the Eastern Bloc, in limited quantities. The miniature, custom designed automobiles envisioned by HYPEANDHYPER were made in the workrooms of Hungarian craftsmen, with care, expertise and love.
In addition to the wooden cars, you can also get special numbered prints as part of the CHROMIEZ collection!
