How do you calm the (frayed) nerves of hundreds of delegates whose smartphones have practically become appendages? You start with a peaceful space. And that’s just what The Huffington Post will do with theOasis, a wellness-focused destination at the 2012 Republican and Democratic National Conventions. The mini-retreat, which offers healthy snacks, spa sessions and yoga classes, offers a respite from the hustle and bustle. But what’s extra-special about the Oasis is the soothing design, created by event planner Bryan Rafanelli. We sat down with the designer (who designed Chelsea Clinton’s wedding) to find out exactly how to turn an intense environment into a true relaxing getaway.
