Using the Aesthetic Design Principle ‘Autonomous, Yet Connected’ to Increase Purchase Intention of Radical Innovations By Consumers

We find that both autonomy and connectedness simultaneously influence purchase intention mediated by aesthetic appreciation. We expected that the aesthetic design principle ‘autonomous, yet connected’ principle would work to increase appreciation for radical innovations and sway the preferred balance to connectedness. These expectations were not confirmed and implications are discussed.
