Working with the essentially decorative nature of biofuel (ethanol) inserts, design research focused on flame behaviour, the differences between wood-burning flame and that from biofuel, and also on fire as "a mark-making tool" and the ability to control fire damage and organise it. All of this was used to transform the traditional fireplace, via sculptural insert, into "a visually rich creation, even when flames aren't burning."
