STUDIO RIFA is a creative agency based in Berlin, specializing in Set Design and Art Direction.
We offer a wide range of creative services, including still life and set designs for fashion, beauty, furniture and interior, concept creation, and photo and film production for editorials and campaigns. We can help to develop your idea from scratch to completion or support you with any stage of your project.
Studio Rifa shares an office space with Studio Chérie, a well-known rental studio in the city’s creative scene. It is a working environment with a unique, open, inventive, and friendly atmosphere. We are people who believe in new ideas, who enjoy life, and who show respect to nature.
Not by chance, we have been committed from the beginning to engaging with environmental issues by using electricity from Greenpeace Energy, biodegradable cleaning products with no harmful ingredients, and working with fair trade and local suppliers.

WHO WE ARE
Kristine Alksne, Founder of Studio Rifa, Art Director and Set Designer
Kristine spent 10 years in Milan, where she established a career as a fine artist after graduation at Accademia di Brera. Her active involvement in contemporary art exhibitions resulted in shows in Europe and in the United States, including at the South London Gallery and at the San Francisco Art Institute. In Italy, she also worked together with architecture studios doing site-specific projects. In 2010, she moved to Berlin and started to explore another field: set design and still life styling. Three years later, Kristine founded Studio Rifa. Since then, with her team, she has been working successfully for both editorial and advertising campaigns.
