JUDGE DAVID KORINS

SET DE­SIGNER

Wallpaper - - W* Awards -

New York-based Korins is the award-win­ning set de­signer and creative di­rec­tor be­hind hit mu­si­cal Hamil­ton, live shows for Lady Gaga, in­stal­la­tions at Coachella and ex­hi­bi­tion de­signs for Gagosian. His epony­mous de­sign and ex­pe­ri­ence firm is cur­rently fi­ness­ing the mu­si­cal adap­ta­tion of Beetle­juice, open­ing on Broad­way in March, and the tour­ing ‘Hamil­ton: The Ex­hi­bi­tion’, which pre­mieres in Chicago in April. As a De­sign Awards judge, he says, ‘I tried to look at the prod­ucts with a prac­ti­cal, use­ful eye. I loved The Nest [page 140]. There was some­thing about the warmth that felt like the essence of home.’ An­other stand­out was Fer­rag­amo’s menswear. ‘I could see my­self in the clothes and ap­pre­ci­ated the col­lec­tion as an in­ter­sec­tion of high art, fash­ion and us­abil­ity.’
