Morphologies of a double-bilayer vesicle were explored experimentally by fast confocal laser microscopy and numerically by a dynamically triangulated membrane model with area-difference elasticity. The confinement was found to induce several shapes of the inner vesicles that had not been observed in unilamellar vesicles: double and quadruple stomatocytes, slit vesicle, and vesicles of two or three compartments with various shapes. The simulations reproduced the experimental results very well and some of the shape transitions can be understood by a simple theoretical model for axisymmetric shapes.
