“Secret Stash” Hides Desk Objects in Places No One Would Think of

“Secret Stash” is one of the coolest ideas we’ve seen lately in this category. Creative and fun, this system comes from designer YiTing Cheng and is able to hide things like keys, money, documents and even valuable messages in places no one would ever think about searching. The designer explains how this is possible: “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”. The video below is truly captivating, so we invite you to take a quick look and be amazed.-via HomeTone
