Everything is directed toward utility with the greatest possible severity. The tendency toward utility does not, however, impede the accession to a state of beauty. The case of the evolution of the automobile form is a striking example of my point; it is even a curious fact that the more the machine perfects its utilitarian functions, the more beautiful it becomes.

Fernand Léger, “The Aesthetic of the Machine”
