Adjust the Brightness of This Lamp by Lowering It into the Well

Štefan Nosko and Katarína Beličková are consumer product designers in Bratislava, Slovakia. They call this lamp Well. You can control the brightness of the lamp by using it like an old fashioned water well. To increase the brightness, crank up the wire. To decrease the brightness, lower the light bulb into the shaded glass cylinder.

Is the white one even decreasing the brightness at all? If that is just frosted glass, or even so thin white coating, it is just softening the light when you look right at it by diffusing it, but otherwise not really dimming it much.

Being part Scottish I don't think I could bring myself to switch it on. It's just too wasteful...however aesthetically beautiful it is, it would grate every time I looked at it.
We've a tumble-drier which I accquired (broken) over a decade ago. Fixed it up for under £2 but since then I don't suppose we've used it more than once a month - just can't bring myself to switch it on when there are cheaper ways to dry clothes.
