Why was it, back in the late 1990s when I was hole-punching things on a regular basis, that the single-hole punch I used looked like some medieval torture device? Why couldn't it have been pretty and ergonomic and see-through?

The Transparent Punch, a concept by Kisang Yoon and Kyubok Lee, takes all of the guesswork out of single hole punching—just peer through the transparent top, line that sucker up, and punch away. It's also just an all-around beautiful piece of design. I want it. No, I need it.
