# A complemented subspace without basis of a space with a basis

Let $E$ be a Banach space with basis. Is it possible to find examples such that $S \subset E$ be a complemented subspace without basis?

A separable Banach space $X$ has the bounded approximation property if and only if $X$ is isomorphic to a complemented subspace of a space with a basis. This result can be found in Classical Banach Spaces, Vol.1, Lindenstrauss and Tzafriri (Theorem 1.e.13).
