SAN FRANCISCO - July 6, 2015 - PRLog -- "This year we saw entries ranging from elegant electronics to very well thought-out products for security," said Clark Kellogg, Spark Senior Advisor. "Our top vote getter was the permanent HUBB Oil Filter by Bob Riccomini and Marco Berkhout for Whipsaw Inc, and Christopher Hubbard for HUBB Filters Inc. Whipsaw's CEO Dan Harden secured second place with the recyclable Leitz Icon Cartridges." "Whipsaw is proving that designs can be both sustainable and efficient," said Spark President, Peter Kuchnicki. "They can even be beautiful—who's ever seen a lovelier oil filter!"

The Spark Product Jury was chaired by John Guenther, venture capital fund director and former Worldwide Design Director of Hewlett Packard. The new Jury Mentor role was assumed by Tania Aldous, Vice President of Design, World Kitchen LLC.
