Abstract:In this paper the history of a particular type of product design is analyzed, compared and
structured. The analyzed products are all of the type where existing objects are used or even incorporated
into the design. This principle is known in the art world as the ready-made. In this research
transformational- and composed ready-mades and several variations are described. The design principle
of using existing objects in designs is then compared with the relation between novelty and typicality as
predictors of aesthetic preference, as researched by Hekkert et al. From there it is argued that the readymade
principle could possibly contribute to designing pleasurable products because the resulting objects
incorporate both novelty and typicality in their presence
