Zurich Soft Robotics

We at Zurich Soft Robotics are dedicated to create innovative new products and solutions based on our patented hybrid hard-soft material robotic actuator in combination with state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence to improve the wellbeing of people and the planet.

Founded in 2022 with a team of diverse expertise, Solskin is only the first step on our Journey. 

For a future

dynamic green cities 

are in harmony with nature


We support the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN




Dr. Bratislav Svetozarevic

Dr. Bratislav Svetozarevic

Bratislav started the development of Solskin as part of his PhD in 2014 and is the inventor of the soft robotic actuator that enables Solskin to work in harsh weather conditions with minimal energy consumption of its own. As a researcher at Empa and previously at ETH Zurich he knows the full spectrum of Solskins capabilities and expands those by state-of-the-art building automation algorithms. He assembled and managed the ZSR team since 2019.

Head of Technology

Gabriel Kreuzer

Gabriel Kreuzer

Gabriel has become the mastermind behind the technical development of the Solskin system. He started working on the project during his master thesis at ETH Zurich where he developed sophisticated control algorithms for the soft material actuators that make Solskin move. Today he works full force to bring Solskin out of the lab onto people’s buildings.

Head of Architecture

Dr. Vesna Kosoric

Dr. Vesna Kosorić

Vesna is an architect with body and soul and her great passion for her work and her vision of sustainable green cities inspires those around her. As a specialist for building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) she is eager to integrate Solskin into buildings to create a user-centric environment, adopting to changes to maximize comfort and wellbeing.

Head of Business

Alexander Zuest

As an engineer with a background in the construction industry and with multiple years of experience in business development, Alex is well positioned at the intersection of product design, marketing, business development and fundraising.
With an open mind and out of the box thinking, paired with his diverse experience including his international studies in Hong Kong, he pushes the vision of Solskin as an elegant solution to the energy transition.

Head of Production

Samuel Bernet

An entrepreneur at heart, Sam designed, manufactured and sold his own devices during his Mechanical Engineering studies at ETH Zürich. Before ETH he did an apprenticeship in IT and worked in China for a year. With a strong belief that solar energy and batteries are the new oil, he is now committed to designing the manufacturing optimized version of Solskin together with Gabriel. 


Matthew Taylor

Business Development (Consultant)

Matt has worked on developing partnerships in renewable tech startups for the past 5 years as well as previously co-founding an energy storage startup. He is experienced at building relationships with key stakeholders such as investors and future customers.
Matts’ entrepreneurial skills will help create many opportunities for Solskin to be implemented into sustainable architecture.

Boris Huljić

Marketing Assistant

Prior to completing his master's in business studies, Boris had a successful career in music arts and held several marketing positions as well as leading his own company for VR and AR projects. With his expertise and passion for marketing and new technologies, Boris will elevate the Solskin brand image and create greater awareness for sustainable architecture.

Đorđe Ćebić

Architecture and Visualisations (Consultant)


As a young architect, Đorđe has cultivated interest in innovative technology applications aimed at preserving nature and sustainability in architecture since his graduate studies. Along with the development of ideas and system integration, he is in charge of visual interpretation of the solution. Using 3D visualisation, he provides insight into the full aesthetic potential and experience offered by Solskin.

Davide Milone

Intern Test Engineer


He recently completed his master's degree, specializing in embedded systems and biomedical devices. He loves to share his cooked food, music playlists and innovative ideas. Davide will work on testing the actuators to further ensure Solskin's long-term reliability and durability.
