Snow Shovels & Teapots… I love em

Thinking of yesterdays journey into the Ready-Made art of Marcel Duchamp and friends, I wondered how much influence they may have had on the designer household items we use today. It seems ironic that everyday utilitarian items were taken and put on a plinth in a gallery and now they have taken the art from the galleries and put it onto the everyday items and called them Art? Is this Fluxus at work? In the true sense of the word?

Incidentally, I wonder what Duchamp would have made of this:
