Perforation Perfection

Perforation has been a major pattern in design throughout the who doesn't like to punch holes in things?  anyway, we've loved the way designers have played with perforation over the years in different applications with different materials.  Perforated metal is so french industrial, perforated fabrics and suedes are punky, and different materials like perforated corian are playful and innovative.  Check some of our favs below...
