SIEVE ME A SEAT
Like a knight’s chain-mail hood, Kettal’s cupped aluminum Stampa chair appears both fluid and sturdy. Designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the outdoor seater gains a distinguished patina over time. $1415, at Studio B

COOL COLANDER
Resident’s brass Mesh Space Pendant – sus-pended by thin wires – tucks a halo-like LED ring inside of a hole-covered dome. Hang it above a kitchen island to play up its resemblance to a pasta strainer. $4725, at Klaus

MESH WELL
Punched steel was a hot trend at April’s Milan Furniture Fair. MDF Italia’s Heron collection, designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, was one of the standouts. A honeycomb-patterned screen backs this cabinet’s open compartment. Coming soon, at Kiosk

A HOLE IN TIME
Umbra’s Perftime copper wall clock is all about minute details. For instance, small openings in the face of the powder-coated metal timepiece make it easy to spot the hour at a glance. Also available in black. $50, at The Umbra Store

HITS THE SPOT
The perforated-look trend extends beyond steel. On BoConcept’s Dot cushion, rows of tiny circles mimic the look of a metal grate. Choose from yellow, green or grey. $60, at BoConcept
