    Just to be clear, I am not saying “Airbnb is not material” in a negative way. I am stating that the name of the awards implies that the guides are followed very closely. IMO if your app is using core methodologies other than Google’s specific system of motion, typography, color, scale, tactile function, then it is just marketing slang to call it "Material Design." I'm sure Google even used portions and idea's from Airbnb's design language when building MD, but I doubt they'd market MD as using Airbnb design system.
