Once again, Manhattan Home Design Review has decided to analyze some of the iconic furniture shown on the new Hulu series ‘The dropout’. The Dropout is an American drama miniseries created by Elizabeth Meriwether, based on the podcast The Dropout hosted by Rebecca Jarvis and produced by ABC News. It’s inspired by the drastic change that the company Theranos and its founder Elizabeth Holmes (portrayed by Amanda Seyfried) wanted to make in the healthcare industry.
Although this miniseries has dropped only six episodes it has captivated the audience from the beginning. Not only the trama and performances are worth talking about, but also the accurate layouts shown in every plane. From the first episodes, you will easily feel like you’re traveling in time thanks to the strategic interior designs they have chosen for every stage of this trama. They have chosen styles such as mid-century and modern to subtly yet effective make your feel different moods such as the warmness of a parent’s house and the elegance and the powerful environment perceived in a massive technology company.
This last point is perhaps one of the most strong points you’ll perceive in the last fourth episodes. Furniture pieces such as the arco lamp, Barcelona chair, Le Corbusier chair, Barcelona table, and even some Barcelona benches are just a few of the iconic modern furniture that helped to elevate every room shown in this miniseries. Personally, we think that the most meaningful set was the arco lamp and the two Le Corbusier chairs since they are placed in the most important office of the Theranos building, which was -yes, you guess…- the Elizabeth Holmes’s office.
If you see, those selections were delightful and very intelligent. If you recall, the Barcelona collection was made by one of the most important designers of the modern era ‘Mies van der Rohe’. He first created this whole collection inspired by the royalty, so it makes total sense that they have used such luxurious yet sophisticated furniture. With this selection, the Elizabeth Holmes personality -that you will be able to decipher along the way- and some kind of highly sophisticated vibe of the collection, make the rooms where she spends time looks cohesive.
You will also be able to see the whole details around the building that makes total sense, such as the remarkable steel accents, monotonous color palette, fines lines, and use of modern materials such as leather, chrome glass, and more.
So this is our review of the ‘The Droput’ drama miniseries. If you’re interested and seeing an incredible performance, gorgeous modern layouts, and a real-life drama, you should add it to your watch list.
