The HOMEBOUND project was born when the pandemic began to cause lockdowns worldwide and many designers and artists had to cancel commissions. Cihan Tamti, author of the book Breakout, took the chance to act and decided to create a publication that would present the free projects of his Instagram community created during this period to use up the extra time. The result was an incredibly beautiful documentation of that time and of work that would never have been produced under normal circumstances.
With the second wave of the pandemic, Cihan Tamti wanted to repeat the same process, with great success: the outcome is HOMEBOUND–New Wave, a publication that features the excellent work of 75 designers from 50 cities and 12 countries! The new waves of the pandemic brought a new aesthetic, a new voice and a great progress in networking and cohesion within the community. The influence on the designers’ attitudes and projects has been questioned, answered, and visualized in this publication.
