She’s Everyone’s – Heck, Every Genre’s – Favorite Set Designer

Es Devlin “works with some of the highest names in high culture – Philip Glass, Russell Maliphant, Richard Wagner – and the massiest in mass culture – Kanye West, Jay-Z, Lady Gaga. She goes from twerk to Gesamtkunstwerk, and all tackled with the same keen rigour. She is, surely, the only person ever to have given the members of Take That a presentation on Belgian surrealism.”
