Fieldbar Drinks Cooler Boxes

WORDS Robyn Alexander

Handcrafted and locally designed, these new Fieldbar cooler boxes will keep all your favourite tipples icy-cold this summer. Have you ever clapped eyes on a more stylish drinks cooler? We’ll wait…

Every now and then the VISI team spots an item that instantly leaps onto all of our must-have lists – and these stylish new Fieldbar drinks coolers have done just that. The Fieldbar Drinks Box is a hardcase cooler that carries up to three bottles of wine (or two bottles of champagne), and is light, durable, clean-lined and available in six up-to-the-minute colours: Parisian Green, Seaboat Blue, Orchard Orange, Bazaruto Blue, Oyster Grey and Safari White.

Fieldbar was started by Capetonians Lee Hartman and Corban Warrington, who say they “noticed that people don’t love their coolers. There are so many beautifully made products for our homes, but outdoor products are a bit bland when it comes to style and design.” After two years of product development – including asking more than 800 people just what they were looking for in a modern cooler – the result is the Drinks Box (R1 499), which is the company’s first product.

Hard-shelled “for better thermal performance”, the Fieldbar cooler is easy to pack and comfortable to carry. And the Fieldbar range doesn’t stop there: a larger cooler, the Picnic Box, is set to launch early next year – at which point the brand will also expand its colour range.
