Designing The Knick 13 MIN, 37 SEC

The Knick is a new Cinemax drama series directed by Steven Soderbergh that examines turn-of-the century medicine in New York City. The series depicts life in 1900 in a shockingly realistic fashion; it features terrifying medical devices, filthy city life and shows the transition to electricity.


The designers describe why they chose not to be nostalgic in any way about the time period.
