Cedes Milano – Now Lorenzi Milano

A quick update about a change that been in the works for a while now.

From a fortnight ago Cedes Milano has changed its name to Lorenzi Milano.

Cedes was only ever a placeholder name for Mauro Lorenzi, after G. Lorenzi, one of Milan’s most respected luxury craft studios closed down (more info in this article from a visit to their workshop last year).

It’s a well deserved homecoming for the family, ensuring the Lorenzi name can continue in its association with Milanese craft for generations to come.

Their pieces are heirlooms in the making, taking rare materials and combining them with the best of Italian craftsmanship. Name me one other business where you can get a mammoth tusk cigar set?

Our two pieces to date (my cigar cutter and Mehri’s flower vase) are two of the most beautiful things in our home and they’re a daily pleasure, every time we look at them in the living room. Not only because they’re aesthetically unique and striking pieces, but because of the craftsmanship which is required to turn them into something so unique and the passion which Mauro and his team have for the things they create. The Lorenzi’s are a lovely family and seeing these pieces reminds us of them.

I’ll go back and edited the articles to replace “Cedes” with “Lorenzi” to avoid any future confusion and from now on. Lorenzi Milano’s website can be found here.

    Hi Andrew,

    Have you ever tried their shoe polishing brushes and accessories?

      Not yet, Joffrey, but it’s a good idea now you mention it. I’ll look into getting some brushes in the future.
