The Origen’s Digital Water Curtain creates a cozy atmosphere of fine rain that welcomes diners inviting them to relax to enjoy an excellent meal in this trendy restaurant in Bilbao.
The digital water curtain divides the main hall into two spaces creating a restaurant and a chill out area to enjoy both spaces with different gastronomic experiences.
The thin rain that falls gently from the digital water curtain generates graphics, patterns and water texts that surprise, amuse and relax visitors so that they can enjoy a gastronomic experience that goes beyond the delicacies offered by their original menu of Japanese-Latin-Basque fusion.
The decorative theme of Origen restaurant is based on the four elements:
1.- The Water, represented by the Digital Water Curtain 100% suitable for interior spaces: It is silent, does not splash, interactive, with a colorful LED illumination, recirculates the water always clean and purified, incorporates a state-of-the-art computer control system that makes the installation work automatically without practically having to perform maintenance tasks. In addition, the water skin of the water curtain serves as a projection support for promotional videos of the restaurant.
2.- The Earth, symbolized by a spectacular vertical garden
3.- The Air is visualized with the undulating movement of the ‘fabric cirrus’ clouds which cross all over the sky of the restaurant.
4.- The Fire, with numerous motifs alluding to the sun and warm lighting bonfires.
Air, earth, water and fire are therefore the hallmarks of the new restaurant Origen, embodied in a spectacular way, which gives personality to an establishment with a vocation to surprise by a radically different character, both in the kitchen and in its decoration, the work of the designer Ainara Arévalo.
Its cuisine, commanded by chefs trained in Michelin-starred dishes such as the Azurmendi restaurant, Etxanobe and Kuma, proposes a fusion of Latin, Basque and Japanese cuisine. With a tanned course in the restaurant Milagros de Barrika, owned by two of the partners of the Origen, now they approach Bilbao that peculiar style that has given them fame for 16 years.
In Origen, the gastronomic offer ranges from the Peruvian ceviches, the Mexican tacos and the recipes of the Basque cuisine, with their meats and fish, to the most typical dishes of Japan, with the sushi at the top. All maried with the international wines and cavas of a complete winery that will soon be around the 100 references.
In addition to the menu, there is an executive menu, a chef’s menu and a tasting menu. To taste them, they offer two dining rooms on two floors, for 37 and 50 diners, overlooking Doña Casilda Park.
