    The design is based on a classic standard lamp, which symbolises the cosiness of a living room, giving the streets of Mannheim the charm of a parlour. The unusual shape is unique, and helps boost identity. On the one hand, a modular system was built for the new stops to set Mannheim apart from other cities and give the Rhine-Neckar transport network its own trademark. On the other hand, it was to be as neutral, flexible and timeless as possible to ensure it can be used anywhere in the city, without disrupting the respective genius loci.
