French Designer and Friends Transform a Standard Set of Pool Balls Into Whimsical Rolling Emojis


When his employer Fred & Farid in Paris received a pool table for the office, design creative Jean-Baptiste Le Divelec, creator of the incredible “2001: A Gif Odyssey” and a few of his friends transformed a complete set of standard pool balls into a wonderfully whimsical set of rolling of emojis. Just because.

After we received at pool table at the agency, I made my own pool table set made of emojis with some friends because why not?
