A place to open up new possibilities for non-ferrous metals

MESSAGE

In line with the relocation of the headquarters, JX Nippon Mining & Metals Corporation has established the SQUARE LAB at the new headquarters, combining a place for co-creation with partners, a showroom, and a place for learning.
SQUARE LAB is composed of a showroom called the Gallery, and an event space called the Arena, and is a place for promoting co-creation efforts to pursue the further potential of non-ferrous metals. We would like to provide a place where we can be inspired to create new value with a variety of people regardless of the industry, including group employees, collaborators, students, and who want to know more about JX Nippon Mining & Metals and our leading technologies.

CONSEPT

SQUARE LAB

Because the English word SQUARE means squared in the mathematical sense, and a city block, we wanted to make this place where people interact and greatly expand new awareness they have gained.
The logo indicates how the two squares (Gallery and Arena) combine organically to form a new shape, and expresses an attitude of changing our perspective and thinking by using the squares that change their angles, not as a plane. The colors have been made into a combination of bronze to represent existing technologies and businesses and blue silver to represent technologies and businesses that will arise in the future in the LAB.

SQUARE LABPurpose of Establishment

JX Nippon Mining & Metals has delivered its value to society as a company responsible for the life cycle of metals, Mineral Resources, Smelting and Refining, Advanced materials and Recycling. This time, through open innovation, we have established this LAB because we want to pursue the further potential of non-ferrous metals to bring new value to society.
