I am also fascinated by how shapes evolve over time, like for instance, why did round nose cars became the 90's automotive face, how the angular boxy ones the 80's etc,etc, I am sure there is a structured theory about it somewhere, I guess it starts with F1 or racing advances and slowly trickles down to the economy class ( sometimes devoid of the original functionality) , manufacturing techniques and other cultural trends among other factors.
In any case I believe we are at or entering the peak of the angular faceted body.
