From 3D wallpaper and a gigantic maze made of cake to a transparent tent and a cleverly designed pen, these are the VISI team’s top picks for this week.

1. Front Design Wallpaper

“I can’t stop staring at these optical illusion wallpapers,” says content producer Michaela Stehr. “Each design was hand-drawn to create a 3D effect.”
