1st december 2019 till 23ed february 2020

While Gelati Tellhof is enjoying a well-deserved hibernation, the rooms are reawakening: the AFRICAN LIVINGROOM has arrived! For almost three months, everything in this living room revolves around the African continent: fashion by renowned West African designers, natural cosmetics with shea butter from Ghana, coffee from Uganda, traditional drinks and an «African Collection» of pastry.

The AFRICAN LIVINGROOM is more than a café and shop – it is a place of interaction, a living room open to everyone and everything connected to the African continent. In January and February 2020, selected brands show their work and regular events, talks, concerts and workshops take place.

Behind the AFRICAN LIVINGROOM it is a women’s trio: Melanie from HANIMANNS, Amaru from AMARUMUSIC and Sandra from SHEA YEAH. Supported by a great team.


Culinary delights are definitely worth a detour: there is coffee from Uganda, traditional African drinks such as Sobolo (hibiscus) or Dawa (ginger) as well as an «African Collection» of pastry with exotic notes, created by Marc Döhring, the former head patissier of the renowned Zurich coffee house «Schober» .
