Carolina Delgado-Duruflé is a multidisciplinary environmental artist and interior designer based in Toronto. She studied at the Glasgow Art School in Scotland, the Bogota campus of LaSalle College, and the Universidad Pontificia Javeriana in Bogota. In 2020, she exhibited her porcelain work at 100 Vases during DesignTO and at Grow Op 2020, where she was the recipient of the Ontario Landscape Architects Association "Ground Award" and of an Ontario Arts Council grant.
In 2013, Carolina was part of the Click Clack Lab that designed Colombia's first Click Clack Hotel in Bogota. Their creation was featured in Elle Italia, the Wallpaper Magazine, and New York Times. Carolina was also the Colombian winner of the Adidas Original White Space Project in 2012, an international art competition aimed at celebrating the originality of the most creative women of their country.
In 2004, she created the brand Planta Baja, Design and Plant Intervention, which resulted in an award-winning store focused on giving a new lifecycle to discarded objects by pairing them with live plants. Planta Baja continues on Facebook, where Carolina provides information on environmental protection and identifies trends in interior design.
She has exhibited her work at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow, the Celestino Mutis Botanical Garden in Bogota, the Banco de la República Art Museum in Colombia, The Warehouse Art Gallery, Bogotá, Agora Art Gallery, New York and the Cedar Ridge Studio Gallery, Toronto. She was also artistic director for television productions for the History Channel, Fox, RCN and Caracol.
Out of Toronto, Carolina offers interior design, landscaping, and visual merchandising services to commercial and residential clients, environmental art installations, and sustainable decoration objects.
