Nicu Bocancea was born in 1977.
“The House of IRIS Flower Shops” was founded by Nicu Bocancea’s father, Adrian Avramita, in 1970, as a family business. Passionate and in love with flowers, the founders Lidia and Adrian Avramita and their two sons have shared this happiness with the world, by creating a way of life. “IRIS” as a brand appeared 20 years later, in 1990. The parents are now very content, seeing their two sons, Nicu and Cosmin, combining the artistic and commercial purpose of their work with international recognition.
More than 100 beautiful and talented people work now for IRIS, in 11 shops in Bucharest, one flower workshop and in the online shop platform.
