The material is aluminum grating - Often used in exterior flooring / fire escapes / drain lids.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to High-Contrast Kitchens for Every Style
Top cabinets in white make the ceilings feel higher, and bottom cabinets in black ground the space. The island's graphic pattern brings them together and pairs well with the Mid-Century Modern style of the house.
An open kitchen is a great place to try black cabinets, as they may look more like furniture and blend with the nearby living spaces.

Love the flooring and the black and white furniture. Didn't like the bar furniture though. Should have matching colors as the kitchen furniture.

Where the fridge is located, notice how the book shelf that makes use of the space between the cabinetry around the fridge, and the cabinets on the perpendicular wall? Perhaps, we can build a floor-to-ceiling pantry, that isn't too deep (10"-15"), and create a similar bookcase in the same space.
