Where to Hide Your Secret Stash

I saw this cool photo from this site. Aside from the hidden drawer under the table, there are some other surprises that the inventor thought of. Just visit the original post to see more.

A drawer disguised as plywood laminate opens 
with the use of a magnetic London souvenir, kept on the desk.

Interesting thoughts from YiTing, the inventor:

This project is about concealing valuables, secrets, bad habits and personal information in our workplaces. Here, hidden spaces/messages were created within 8 general objects such as wood boards, lamps and disposable coffee cups... How? Utilize stereotypes and visual camouflage. We make judgments based mainly on our experiences and what we see. This dependency on visual information can create large blind spots. Thus, usual stereotypes of how we perceive solid, transparency and lighting are employed in this project to play with notions of 'solid and void', and 'true and false'.
