4690 Slat Bench (1950s)
Made by Herman Miller
Listed for sale is a gorgeous original George Nelson 4690 slatted wooden bench with ebonized finish. This example was designed by George Nelson and George Nelson Associates, produced then by Herman Miller. This piece is in very nice vintage condition, showing gorgeous wear and patina to the underside and legs. It appears that the top has been refreshed and thus looks quite clean and nice on the top. This is the shorter 4690 model and thus measures 48 inches long by 18.5 inches deep and 14.5 inches tall. It can be paired with other nelson cabinets and was intended to be a modular piece.
